Subject: The Mesquiteers Ride Again!
This is the 12th entry in the 3 Mesquiteers Series, released in January 1938, and a very satisfying entry it is on all points. Very good picture and sound fron a TV Print. Above average story concocted by two of the top Western screenplay writers around at the time, with just enough plot twists and surprises to keep you guessing. A large cast with many speaking parts for loads of familiar Republic player faces. Livingston, Corrigan and Terhune now very comfortable in their roles. The film plays out in the second half in serial style and feel. Note: Watch for Jack Perrin and Earle Hodgins cast against type very effectively. Highly recommended. Enjoy.
